This certification course has been designed to specifically provide future police / law enforcement / and security students (or public members) to have a thorough understanding of the lawful responsibilities in a use of force situations where an expandable baton is deployed. Instructions will include expandable baton strikes, target areas, and post-engagement management. The course also prepares participants of how to prepare and train in defensive tactics fundamentals as they progress through their police application and what to expect in defensive tactics training upon arriving at the training colleges.

The TriCom (Tri-Angle Combatives) System Expandable Baton Program have been taught to Police and Military units throughout Canada, United States, Germany, England, Korea, Singapore, Brazil and the Philippines. We have developed policy, procedure and training programs for police academies and agencies worldwide.
